Is his "closer" included in the DVD? I am waiting for my preordered one to arrive, but I wanted to stop wondering. Thanks,
Jonathan.

I am totally new to metal bending of any kind. The dvd is very well done. The menus work great and the sections are divided up nicely. Morgan does a great job teaching and explaining the method and provides a long performance section so you can see how he handles real world situations. The routine is very strong and the misdirection is well covered. I was very impressed .

So do you give anything out for a souvnire? Is the fork you give to them hard to make?(switch involved?)
Thanks,
Zack

Just watched it today, excellent routine, I'll be working on perfecting this for quite a while. To answer your question, yes, you do give them the severely twisted fork as a souvenir. There is no switch involve, and he teaches some bonus effects such as a gimmickless key bend (and break), a funny way to deal with hecklers, and a pretty cool corkscrew-tine bend. I'll see about writing a review sometime soon.

I just ordered it and will try to post a review! I can't wait! I would go ahead and ask you how it works but I have no way to prove I got it so I'll just wait and talk to you later about it.
Later,
Zack

Why don't you just go to the Penguin only forums and ask? I'm sure there are posts there to answer your question.

I didn't want to give out the secret, but since you asked, here is the super duper metal bending secret:

You bend it when they aren't looking!

No, seriously!

Enjoy!

He's right, no use getting the DVD now, haha.

Zachary, you should get the P.O. section as soon as it ships. So since you ordered last night, you won't have the forum until around noon -later afternoon today.

If it still doesn't show up, e-mail or call their customer service. They're very helpful and will make sure you get your P.O. forum there.

Now, I would suggest you go to Wal-Mart and buy a lot of Dominion forks, since you're going to be destroying so many with practice and performances. They sell around 6 for a buck, so it's a good deal and they bend easily.

I got it this morning and it looks very nice. If you already own some Banachek or Osterlind's stuff, you'llbe able to get this routine smooth for you. It is very nice, and the fork (a real normal fork) looks so weird at the end that it makes (as he says on the DVD, and he's not lying) the "ultimate" souvenir (yes, I know, "ultimate" is not a good word... Anyway, this souvenir is darn good Smile )
I expect having a lot of fun.

How much of Morgan's liquid metal differs from Banachek's PK silverware? Are the misdirections any more different, or are they essentially the same? It just seems to me that the demo reveals a different atmosphere of people performed to rather than the techniques involved. What's your take on this?

My question is if you do this in a restaurant, or a house party, how do you get away with bending their forks. I would think the restaurant or people throwing the party would be awfully mad no matter how great the routine.

Bring your own forks. If someone then requests you to use their forks it's no problem. That's why you should practice with a wide variety of forks so you'll be able to do something no matter what's given to you.

Lance,
The material differs from Banachek's and Osterlind's in some ways.

-The environment: Morgan teaches you a routine to be performed surrounded in a less formal situation than the others (I wonder how good this routine would play at tables, Please, tell me, all of you guys, what you think about doing this routine in table-hopping.) It is more, "rock'n'roll" (I don't know what else to say) than the standerd "lot of concentration" mentalism routines.

- The techniques itselves: you'll learn to do a multiple tines bend, an impromptu twist in the hand of the spectator, a very nice visual melting effect that the spectator makes to happen, and, finally, you end with a fork that looks like the one ont he cober of the Banacher PK silverware, i.e. wqith multiple bends in it, twisted and weird, that you can leave to the spec.

Really, you'll get something new.

PS Even a tine corkscrew twist (bonus.)

To clear a few things up. If you do his exact routine, you use two forks (both are shown, you down't have to switch them or anything) and one has to be prepared a little (for the break).

I don't so that part so I start with one completely normal fork. You can have them initial it and check for the mark at any point in the routine. When I saw the video, I saw the totally messed-up fork and thought, "that's just promo". But it isn't. You start with a normal, signed, fork, and end looking like that.

You hit it on the nail redstreak! You start with one fork and end with the same fork all twisted up. I also use only the 2nd part of the routine-- Sometimes I use just the break and skip the corkscrew and move on to the 2nd part of the routine. I also added in the specator signing the fork- I did that because I had people thinking I was swithcing the fork-boy were they shocked when they saw their signature after the fork bent every time.

Hey, you, European fork benders (like me Smile ), did you find "the perfect fork" to buy? Let me know, I am making serious researches in order to find the "ideal" one.

Thanks for imputs.
